TRADE BEADS- Rediscovering Trade Beads of African and Native American trade has been inspiring and educational. Beads have been the passion of humans from earliest history. Each bead used in trade has an unknown past of great interest and collectible value.

BRASS TRADE BEADS-Brass has been used in many forms in Africa and still is today. There intricate spiral and woven beads have been made in different regions by lost wax casting. Many of the small bicones and heishi spacers beads have their origin as prayer beads from Ethiopia and Kenya. The various forms have been used in trade for goods, which is why they are called trade beads. Historians suggest the ancient Tuareg technique may have paved the way for the cage-like Baoule Brass Beads now produced in abundance along the Ivory Coast.

African recycled glass beads are made by members of the Krobo Tribe which is located in Ghana, Africa. These African beads are created by compressing glass into a dry grain, and heating the grain so that the pieces form together. The recycled glass is rushed into a porcelain cast. The stem of a cassava leaf is used to make the hole. It is baked in a furnace causing the glass to melt together and cassava stem to burn. This technique has been used in Africa for centuries to make recycled glass beads. The technique used by the Krobo people is made to resemble sea glass or beach glass that is physically and chemically weathered glass found on beaches along bodies of fresh and salt water. These weathering processes produce natural frosted glass.

COPPER- is a wonderful conductor of energy.. Copper supports the tissues and red blood cells. It is commonly known that copper has been used in bracelets to help those with arthritis

Shipping policies

Let's support the USPS. I ship everything by USPS mail, especially because it allows tracking and we can always add insurance if you request that in convo. If you want it faster, please convo me for the shipping cost. I will invoice any additional shipping expenses through Paypal only. International shipping will not be priority mail, so please allow for the difference in shipping times which may be as much as three weeks for some countries...sorry for that. I wish I could control the postal handling outside of the US, but it isn't possible at this time to track international items beyond a customs form.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I ship items within 5 days of your order if it is in stock, custom items will ship within 15 days from accepted order and you will receive notification by email. Each piece will be gift wrapped in a box, with secure bubble envelope or shipping box.

We will include free gift wrap if requested.

All purchases over $40 will be automatically insured by USPS at my expense.

Additional policies

Custom Items can be requested through the custom section of my page. If you see something that you like, it's possible to make in different lengths, or different stones.
Custom items take time and the expectation is for payment of completed items. A photo of the completed item will be posted in your reserved listing for your approval or emailed in an attachment prior to purchase. Communication through convos or emails is best to determine the details of the custom work. If the work is extensive or requires additional materials, partial payment may be required in advance and that will be communicated to the buyer before the custom item can commence.

The jewelry I make is as if it is for myself. It is made with every intent be the very best that I can make by hand. In that regard, there will be irregularities one should expect in handmade items and natural stones. Most items are one-of-a-kind, but styles may be similar. Please feel free to convo with any questions.

Enjoy!
